He was booked into the parish detention center for simple burglary of an inhabited dwelling, possession of a legend drug, possession of a Schedule IV drug and possession of a Schedule II drug.

Willingham is accused of breaking into a friend's house and taking prescription drugs identified as Oxycodone, morphine, Adderall, Klonopin and Lorazepam that the victim said belonged to her. He also possessed the legend drug Cyclobenzaprine that did not belong to the victim.

Deputies were told by Willingham that he had unlocked the victim's back door while visiting. When she left the resident, he admitted that he returned to the residence and took the prescription drugs.

His bond was set at $17,400.

Ladarius D. Davis, 27, of 1101 Cedar St., Farmerville, was arrested Friday after a traffic stop. He was booked for possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia, driving under suspension, running a stop sign and fugitive from justice from Sterlington for a traffic violation.

No bond information was available.

Arrested on his third offense possession of marijuana was Curtis J. Lloyd, 31, of 601 Hickory St., No. 30, Farmerville.

A state Probation and Parole agent informed sheriff's deputies that while he was performing a home inspection on a probationer that he had found a marijuana cigarette in a bedroom shared by Lloyd and the probationer.

He was also arrested on a new charge of resisting an officer because he gave officers a fake name. His total bond was set at $11,500. Deputies said Hayes told them he gave them a false name because he didn't want to leave his newborn baby.
